Hi everyone!

 

I am Marcos Lopez, currently an IT Support Specialist at Harbar LLC. 

 

I have worked with a third party vendor  managing the Network Infrastructure, originally we had only the AP and few SW under Cisco-Meraki, however, I arrange the project to consolidate all our infrastructure to Cisco-Meraki devices, finally, we have (Firewalls, Switches, AP) and I am enjoying the dashboard where I can see all my network.

 

Right now I am evaluating the possibilities to also have Cisco-Meraki IP Cameras over the buildings.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Welcome! Please introduce yourself.

I am a senior network engineer with a financial company. We are fully engaged in the Cisco SD-WAN Viptela environment.

 

I am new to Meraki , I recently purchased a Meraki MX64W with advance security license.

I find the product amazing

 

I am trying to learn how the Meraki product line fits together and learn all the in and outs of configuring and understanding the technology.

 

Communities are always a great place to start, looking forward to reading the posts.

Anyone have a good starting point (please do not  say Meraki.com, I have been there notorious times and I do agree it is a great resource)

 

One of the best interview question I have ever had as a engineer was . What was the biggest thing you ever broke as a network engineer. I ask why and was told if you never broke anything you never did anything.

 

We all do have our moments, and I had my share : )

 

Thank you

Hi @anthony225 and welcome to the Meraki Community!

 

One good place to start in learning about Meraki, if you want a bit of a guided tour, is our "Preview" ECMS1 course, which introduces you to Meraki and to navigating the Meraki dashboard. You can find that here: https://community.meraki.com/t5/ECMS1/ct-p/ecms1 (scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Take me to the preview" page). You may also be interested in registering for the full ECMS1 course, which is an all-day instructor-led virtual course (but, be warned that demand for ECMS1 is high and sessions do fill quickly!)

 

You can also, of course, just ask your questions here on the community (in the relevant board under Product & Technology Discussions) and our friendly community members will answer. 

 

Cheers!
